Tecnatom Group attends one more edition of JEC World, the largest international composites show, to be held from 14 to 16 March in Paris.

Tecnatom's aerospace division is showing, along with its French subsidiary M2M, its most advanced technological developments, especially in the field of inspection systems, highlighting its new semi-automatic 3D portable arm and its WiiPA system. Other Tecnatom’s applications available is the GEOID software that solves the problems of identifying and controlling the position of parts to be inspected, avoiding possible damages.

Tecnatom Group celebrates its 60th anniversary this year; six decades in which it has been working on systems and Non-Destructive Testing techniques, and developing several own inspection systems currently distributed worldwide.

Madrid, March 13th 2017.- Tecnatom Group is attending JEC World, the largest international gathering of composites professionals, which takes place from 14 to 16 March at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center. The objective of JEC World is to explore how composites respond to the challenges of our century: environment, sustainability, Industry 4.0., innovation, prospective, knowledge and trends.


Tecnatom Group, together with its French subsidiary M2M, presents its technological developments for the aerospace industry (booth L66), especially in the field of inspection systems, non-destructive testing and control engineering. Visitors will meet some of the automated inspection solutions of the Spanish multinational, such as its new semi-automatic 3D portable arm, which bases the applicability of 3D commercial measuring arms on manual inspections by Ultrasonic (UT), Eddy Current, Visual (VI) or other non-destructive testing. This system provides the flexibility of manual inspection and allows recording of coordinates on pieces of complex geometry, without the need to use more sophisticated and more expensive robotic systems.

Tecnatom also includes its GEOID software in its product portfolio, which solves the problems of identification and control of the positioning of the parts for inspection, avoiding possible damages. The application allows checking, in an automated mode, if the installed part to be inspected is the correct one according to the inspection plan, If this is not the case, the application prevents the inspection until the piece is correctly positioned, thus avoiding delays, unwanted checks, and mistakes that can lead in some cases to damage or even destruction of the piece under inspection, or the inspection system itself.

The Wireless Positioning Inspection System (WiiPA), an innovative manual inspection system intended to provide a low-budget solution to some NDT applications traditionally addressed to high-end and costly automated systems: testing of large and/or complex geometry components. To achieve this, WiiPA integrates two state-of-the-art technologies: artificial vision positioning and 3D inspection software, with highly competitive advantages but at the same time it saves costs for the customer.

At JEC World Tecnatom shows this wide variety of systems and applications that seek to meet aerospace industry requirements: reducing time and costs in manufacturing processes, as well as automation and improving safety.
